Metropolitan News moved to Cypress st. at some point, though they kept their original sign saying 1248 Peel. They’re gone now but did make it into this century.
I remember when we used to have these newsstands around town. When people used to pick up the Montreal Star to read on the way home.
As for Metropolitan News, they moved to Cypress after getting a high offer on their building on Peel. But I think what did them in, more than anything else, was the temperament of the old man, who even made regulars not want to come back.
Yes, I remember him.
I wonder how many of the papers they carried (even 10 years ago) still exist.
